as far as NT goes, Glushakov looked good in the game I watched, otherwise no new names so far...Shennikov?
Are there friendly's coming up? Even playing weak opponents is not a place for experiments, those should be done in friendlys. I would look at Faizullin, Glushakov, Shennikov, but only as a motivation, otherwise their time will come when Semshov, Semak, Zyryanov will step away..
Izmailov is just not good enough...Kerzhakov is a maybe, not a big fan of his though.
I would add Kasaev from Kuban', Ryazantzev from Rubin, to the list of the young talents that should be slowly introduced to NT's atmosphere.
There are some more young players slowly emerging, such as Mishenko from terek, who looks like he's got a starting role on a pretty strong team, Makeev from Spartak M, Maloyan...obviously these players can't dream of making the NT today, but it's nice to see that some young Russian players are making their way up.
If Zenit's stadium is just as good as the one in Donetsk it will be wonderful!
stadium in Rostov is awful, they were building "west" for like 12 years or something like that, than broke the "south" and it took them another 5-6 to rebuild; now there are problems with the "east" which is closed for public and should be reopened in June (I wanna see that...) There's no roof anywhere but "west", the score-board is awful and needs to be replaced.
Everyone is talking about building a new stadium on the left bank of Don-River, but for now it's dreams and nothing more.
